The running game was the best thing the Bears had going for them against the Green Bay Packers in their 23-10 loss on Thursday night. But even that facet to their offense is in flux after running back Matt Forte suffered a sprained ankle that could keep him out for 2-6 weeks.

Forte suffered the injury, which ESPN's Adam Schefter reported as the more-debilitating high sprain, when he was tackled by Packers safety Charles Woodson near the Packers' sideline after a 15-yard reception early in the third quarter.
Forte had 31 yards rushing and 49 yards receiving at the time of his injury. Backup Michael Bush is expected to see a significant increase in his workload with Forte out and third stringer Armando Allen could also get an opportunity to contribute.
